How to Watch Brazil vs Serbia

28 June 2018

Goals by Paulinho and Thiago Silva steered a much-improved Brazil to a 2-0 victory over a battling but ultimately outclassed Serbia on Wednesday and into a World Cup second-round meeting with Mexico.

Brazil avoided the sort of shock result that had earlier seen Germany knocked out of the World Cup by defeating Serbia to finish top of Group E and book a last-16 tie against Mexico.

Brazil have only managed one victory in their last seven World Cup games against European opposition (D2 L4) - a 3-1 win against Croatia in 2014.

For Serbia, Mitrovic was a direct force up front, while Tadic picked up where he left off against Switzerland, being a threat down the right.

When Neymar decides to play, Brazil plays well and that was the story at the Spartak stadium.

However, a superb lofted pass from just inside his own half by the outstanding Philippe Coutinho sent Paulinho clear and he stretched high to toe the ball over goalkeeper Vladimir Stojkovic and ease the pressure.

A win or even a draw will be enough for Switzerland to book themselves a ticket for the knockout stages.

The South American giants suffered a setback in the 10th minute, however, when Marcelo was forced off with what appeared to be a foot injury, with Filipe Luis replacing him at left-back.

Switzerland will be aiming for a pre-quarterfinal berth when they face the already eliminated Costa Rica on Wednesday. The Serbs ended third in the group on three points, a disappointing campaign for them and their fans in Moscow after a bright opening game win against Costa Rica.

Mitrovic towered over right-back Fagner near the 65th minute but only to fire his header straight at Alisson with the entire goal to shoot at.

Jesus proved lively with runs in behind the Serbia defence and his endeavour created a chance for Neymar, whose cross-goal strike was pushed away by Stojkovic.

Gobert averaged 13.5 points, 10.7 rebounds and 2.3 blocks per game - the latter of which was good enough for third in the league. Unfortunately for him, his incredible playoff run didn't factor into the voting (since MVP is a regular-season award).
